Three Louisiana State University students have been arrested for allegedly breaking into Tiger Stadium and causing $8,000 of damage.

According to The Advocate, Clayton Fleetwood was the only student to break in twice, including one incident that was posted on social media. The 19-year-old was arrested on Thursday and booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on simple burglary, criminal trespassing and two counts of unauthorized use of a movable.

The LSU Police Department arrest report alleged that Fleetwood, a New Jersey native who was released on a $10,000 bond, broke into the football stadium in Baton Rouge late at night on Jan. 21 and Feb. 8.

“On both occasions, [Fleetwood] can be seen on video surveillance within the fully fenced/enclosed area under the bleachers of Tiger Stadium,” the report said, noting that Fleetwood was driving a Kawasaki Mule ATV on the field. “It should be noted the field was under construction and without grass, and just had a new drainage system installed. [Fleetwood’s] use of the ATV on the field area caused enough ruts/damage to require the precision grading to be repeated.”

According to Fox 8, Fleetwood was accompanied by Thomas English during the first incident. English, 18, was booked on one count of simple burglary and a felony count of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, and criminal trespassing.

Catherine Elizabeth Nowery, 20, was allegedly with Fleetwood on Feb. 8. Nowery was booked on one felony count of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, and criminal trespassing and a misdemeanor charge of criminal trespass.

Police also reported that another individual accompanied Fleetwood during one of the incidents, and that Fleetwood was identified by two anonymous callers. English and Nowery were both arrested on Friday, a day after Fleetwood, according to WBRZ.

“Delta Chi maintains eleven basic expectations that each member is taught to embody in all facets of life,” the international headquarters of Delta Chi, the fraternity of Fleetwood and English, said in a statement to The Advocate. “Among them, the expectation to respect personal property and the property of others. The IHQ staff recognizes the severity of this situation and is dedicated to finding a jus resolution, while ensuring due process rights are honored.”
